Yūgumo — Japanese Tier IX destroyer.

Developed from the preceding Kagero-class destroyers, the very similar Yūgumo-class was a minor revision featuring new main gun mounts capable of high angle fire, reinforced AA defenses and a streamlined bridge structure.

Player Opinion

Performance

Yūgumo is penultimate destroyer in the "torpedo boat" branch of the Japanese tech. Captains who have progressed this far up the branch will be well-familiar with the layout of the ship, but will probably be disappointed in how few improvements there are over Tier VIII's Kagero lurking inside the hull.

One big improvement is the reload time of Yūgumo’s main battery guns. The reload time of her 127mm/50 Type3 guns is a mere 5.7 seconds; glacially slow by American destroyer standards, but a speed heretofore unseen with Japanese 127 mm guns. With the right mix of upgrades and commander skills that number can drop even lower, bringing her DPM close to a true gunboat, though she will still lack the raw DPM of American destroyers or the excellent ballistics of Russian destroyers. Her main battery range goes up significantly as well, further emphasizing the benefits of her improved reload speed. Her turret traverse is much improved, too, but a 22.8 second 180° traverse time is very much in keeping with the flavor of her predecessors.

Yūgumo has the option of two torpedo upgrades from the stock Type 93 mod. 2. The first upgrade is to Type F3 which is outrageously fast at 76 knots but at the cost of 2 km of range. The recommended choice, however, is the final upgrade — Type93 mod. 3, which remain at 67 knots but with a range of 12 km and a near-24K wallop. Most captains will choose the Torpedo Tubes Modification 1 (+20% traverse speed of torpedo tubes. / −40% chance of critical damage to torpedo tubes. / +5% to the speed of shipborne torpedoes.) upgrade to improve speed to 70 kts and offset the risk of Torpedo Tubes Modification 2 (Decreases reload time of torpedo tubes: -15% reload time. / +50% risk of incapacitation.) that improves reload time to 97 seconds.

Most everything else remains as it was from Kagero. Her speed improves slightly (0.5 knots), and her handling characteristics remain virtually identical. Her main battery is now dual-purpose, but practically in name only; it does a better job giving away her presence to nearby planes than actually defending the ship and should generally be ordered to hold fire. Her health pool goes up by the slimmest of amounts (400 hit points). Even Yūgumo’s detection radius is worse than Kagero, but it's very slight and not a serious handicap.

Pros:

  • Okay reload speed for her main battery guns.
  • Very potent torpedo armament, capable of impressive reload speeds with the right mix of upgrades and commander skills.
  • Can equip Torpedo Reload Booster.
  • Lowest detection radius among Tier IX destroyers.

Cons:

  • In a world of gunboats, her overall DPM is hardly impressive.
  • Lowest top speed among Tier IX destroyers.
  • Vulnerable to enemy aircraft, especially if equipping Torpedo Reload Booster instead of Smoke Generator.
  • Turret traverse time for main battery remains slow.
  • Detection range of Type 93 torpedoes gives opponents more time to react than torpedoes from Fletcher or Udaloi.

Research

  1. Type F3 torpedoes,
  2. Hull (B) for ~14% more health and to unlock Shimakaze,
  3. Type93 mod. 3 torpedoes for the biggest bang,
  4. Type9 mod. 2 GFCS for gun range [optional].

Optimal Configuration

Yūgumo is an excellent torpedo destroyer and her build should augment her best attributes.

Upgrades

Slot 4 presents two good options: Propulsion Modification 1 (Reduces time to full speed: -50% to time for reaching full power. / Increases engine power when the ship starts moving.) boosts acceleration out of dangerous waters; Steering Gears Modification 1 (Reduces rudder shift time: -20% rudder shift time.) improves agility. Captain's choice.

Commander Skills

Yugumo has two priorities: survival, and her torpedoes.

Consumables

Yugumo can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 1 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce detectability range.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Yūgumo with Type 19 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Signals

Yūgumo’s reliance on her torpedoes for much of her damage output make equipping Juliet Whiskey Unaone signal flags highly attractive, particularly for Torpedo Build captains; Torpedo Build captains will want to equip November Foxtrot flags as well, in order to improve the cooldown speed of Torpedo Reload Booster. Main Battery Build captains should equip India X-Ray and Victor Lima flags. Juliet Charlie and Sierra Mike flags are recommended regardless of build.
